While our vision answers the question, "Where are we going?", our mission statement answers the question, "What are we called to do in pursuit of the vision, day in and day out?" Our mission at Westlight can be summed up as follows:
CELEBRATE AND INVITE OTHERS INTO THE LIFE-CHANGING WORK OF JESUS THROUGH COMMUNITY.
We believe that God uses communities to help bring change in our lives and in our neighborhoods. Therefore, at the core of our organization are LIFE GROUPS. Life Groups are small community groups that meet on a regular basis outside of Sunday Worship Service. Life Groups focus on three core values:
- Sharing life with each other in our faith journey.
- Intentionally connecting with others in our community.
- Participating in God's work of redemption, making God's way tangible to real people dealing with real issues.
Life Group bring transformation to us and our surroundings. We believe that Jesus ushered in the New Creation in the midst of an old one. All important changes in the world must begin in the hearts of people.
